Wildlife of MadagascarPAPERBACK £24.95 Buy Now
The Indian Ocean island of Madagascar is one of the world's great natural treasures and ecotourism destinations. Like Galápagos, it is a laboratory of evolution, but on a much larger scale, since it is home to nearly an entire continent's variety of species, from the famous lemurs to a profusion of bizarre and beautiful birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Small and portable yet thorough, this is the most comprehensive single-volume field guide to Madagascar's wildlife and the first to provide extensive coverage of the island's butterflies. More than 500 stunning color photographs illustrate the vast majority of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies that a visitor is likely to see, along with a selection of insects and plants. Wildlife of Madagascar is organized by group – from mammals to plants – and its authoritative and accessible text provides key information about identification, habitat, behavior, and conservation. Ideal for everyone from casual tourists and nature lovers to experienced naturalists and professional biologists, this is an essential guide to the natural wonders of Madagascar.

It is distinctive qualities of flying waterbirds that are the keys to the mystery. Be it wing beat cadence, individual structure, flock shape and behaviour, or subtle flashes of colour, all are revealed in this guide.
